I've tried finding which one would be right, but no luck so far. Which of the NRA targets (or a downloadable would be fine) is appropriate for 200 and 300 yd range using iron sights?

I figure since the mausers and the like shoot high at 100 and the sights start at 200 perhaps I can avoid buying a zillion mojo sights. Not that I don't like the one I have, but it was a pain in the butt getting it on properly.

TQ4; A25; A33, are 100yards for smallbore. I shoot mostly 50/25 yards or 50m smallbore with open (peep) sights.

Check the pistoleer website.

Buy a few tall front sights.

As to targets, I'm good with a 9" paper plate on a brown background (butcher paper 36" wide) to 200 yards. Staple butcher paper to target backer, & staple plate to paper.

300 yards requires something larger for me to get a good sight picture.

For a minute, I thought you meant iron targets....

I buy used cast-iron skillets from the thrift store for $2-3 each. A 14" skillet can be seen at 200 yards, if you have good eyes. It can be hit from 200 yards, and you'll hear the impact. When it gets too full of holes, just discard and spend a new $3.

The SR (for 200) and the SR-3 (for 300) are used in NRA Highpower. 100yd reduced versions are on the USPalma website.

Shrink,

The standard highpower target has a black aiming "bull" of approx. 6 MOA for all ranges out to 600 yards.

The NRA-CMP SR-1 target for 100 yards has a bull of 6.35" diameter (6.35 MOA). The SR target for 200 yards has a bull of 13" diameter (6.5 MOA). The SR-3 target for 300 yards has a bull of 18" diameter (6.0 MOA). The 600 yard MR target has a bull of 36" diameter (6.0 MOA).

This gives the same relative sight picture at all ranges. The black bull looks the same through the sights no matter what distance you are shooting from.

Best,
Swampy

I will measure out some plates and give the 200 yd a go next time. Maybe I won't have to Mojo the mauser after all. Besides, the high power range seems emptier, and no annoying change target on the half hour like the 100 yd range does. There is nothing worse than just missing the cease fire and having to sit twiddling your thumbs.

They come in various sizes and the smallest aiming point you can see gives the best account of rifle accuracy.

I like the Shoot N See targets ( I think that is the name of those.) because they change color with a hit and I can easily see where I am hitting without having to go down range, except to patch them occasionally.
